Famous quotes containing the word howe:

    In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
    With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me;
    As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free;
    —Julia Ward Howe (1819–1910)

    He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are
    He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;
    —Julia Ward Howe (1819–1910)
